img_20341img_20361img_20351img_20331img_20381img_20401img_20421As we are now in the festive period I have begun to start decorating my room to get in the festive spirit. Now my room as just been re decorated (don’t worry there will be a room tour hopefully in the new year) but I needed some new festive decorations for my room, not tones but just a few new smaller ones. Note to all that when I decorate to get into the festive mood blasting a Christmas playlist is a must!

Where do I start… as you will begin to understand I am mad about Christmas, so mad it fact that I have been nagging my parents about it for weeks since November. We decorated the down stairs with our main Christmas tree, the theme here is purples, browns and gold which ties in well with our living room colours. Also, we have our tiny nativity scene which sits on the bottom of the fireplace. Honestly I love the front room at Christmas, it so festive and cosy.

Elsewhere, we have another tree which is in our kitchen this one doesn’t really have a theme it just has mine and my sister handmade decorations on it and other little cute decorations that don’t fit the main tree’s theme. We also have these lush lights on the house outside.

As for my room I wasn’t able to go all out as I had hoped as having my room done meant that my festive decorations from last year just didn’t look right. However, I do have these two small snow globes that sit on my desk, which get me into the festive mood each morning before school! Also I have my stocking out which are so cute, I love them both so much it just adds that little bit extra to my room.

Do you all decorate your rooms? How do you all decorate your rooms for Christmas?

November Do’s & Dont’s

Hello lovelies

November November… this year has gone by so fast. I can’t believe that it’s almost Christmas! Anyway today I thought I would do you all some do’s and don’ts for this November.

  1. Do Moisturise

At this time of year I tend to find my skin gets extremley dry and looks red, however since i have been using the Freederm Perfecting Moisturiser religiously my skin hasn’t been so dry and red.

2. Don’t under estimate the cold

Since I’m still at school, I am still used to those early start which in the winter can be the worst. November mornings are going to be so chilly my advice is never leave the house without a coat, trust me you will be thankfully for it if, like me, you have to walk to school.

3. Do make the most of it.

When I say this I mean enjoy November before the busy Christmas period begins. Spend the darker evenings cwtched up inside with a good old film and candles, yes lots of candles.

4. Don’t forget the winter accessories

You cannot forget about the hats, scarfs and gloves this November. Now I abosultely love these now I am going to start wearing these back and forth to school no matter what! You can get really pretty scarfs from places like New Look or Primark.

5. Do try and get some great photos

So this one is alittle belated, but it was bonfire night yesterday, the perfect time for a photo op. Try and capture little things this month, to create memories like no other. (These were photos I took last night at a fireworks display I went to with my boyfriend and his family)

6.Don’t get to down

This is a hard one but try not to get to down about anything. I know that sometimes things don’t always go as planned but remember there is always something better ahead. Just alittle advice for anybody who might be feeling alittle down this Novermber.

7. Do remember the Berry Tones

Currently I am loving wear browns and those autumnal shades on my lids. However, I will definatly be bring in some shimmery shades onto my eye lids as we head into November. Lips wise towards the end of November I can ensure you that the berry tones will be making an appearence.
